Pawsitively Cincinnati: The story of a man and his dog

Posted at 1:47 PM, Jan 22, 2020

CINCINNATI, OHIO — In “Positively Cincinnati,” we’ve taken a close look at all different kinds of relationships: Dads and daughters, students and teachers, singers and their audiences. Today, we’re talking about another kind of relationship. The one between man and his best friend.

A couple weeks ago, one of my co-workers, Paul Harper, sent me a story he did about a Tri-State man and his remarkable dog. It took me through the range of emotions. And it reminded me why we choose to suffer through the loss of a pet over and over again. It’s because they bring us incredible joy, packing it into their shorter life expectancies.

When I watched Paul’s story, I couldn’t help but cry. But I also laughed and smiled plenty. The dynamic duo you’re about to meet above might remind you of your own relationship with your pets. When I watched, I thought about my golden retriever, Ginny Mae. She’s not as skilled as the dog in this story, but I’m not as skilled as the pet parent, either. That said, you don’t have to be, to appreciate the very special, amazing bond Paul captured in this piece. I hope you’ll check it out.
